Tipstim® is a completely new product to improve sensorimotor abilities of the hand in rehabilitation after brain damage, such as stroke, craniocerebral trauma but even other rare neurological diseases as e.g. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS Type 1). tipstim® was developed in collaboration with the the Institute of Neuroinformatics (Neural Plasticity Lab) at the well-known Ruhr-University Bochum in Germany. tipstim® consists of a pulse generator and a hi-tech therapy glove (tipstim® glove).
Tipstim® is a clinically tested and approved product according to the European Medical Device Directive (MDD). The efficacy and safety of tipstim® therapy has been proven in rigorous clinical trials. None of the study participants showed significant events or side effects.
The therapy itself is completely painless, without side-effects and very easy to apply. You simply pull over the tipstim® glove, connect it to the pulse generator and start the therapy session once a day for 1 hour. The therapy does not demand any special attention. Due to the small size of the pulse generator, the therapy can easily be integrated into everyday life and home care – even when being limited in mobility. In principle, therapy can be applied everywhere, even during walking and during other occupations such as reading or watching television
